For those that know me well, you’re aware of my goal to play in the main event of The World Series of Poker. I’ve had a number of excuses over the last few years of why I didn’t play (not having a spare $10,000 lying around always seemed to be at the top of the list).
Well, I’ve had a fairly successful run over the last few years in tournaments, and it’s time to take a shot. Starting Monday, I will be playing a couple of WSOP warmup events. Monday is a $2K No-Limit Hold ‘Em tournament. I’ll follow that up with a $1500 buy-in event in late June, then the main event, which starts on July 3rd.
I intend to update my blog throughout the day from my Blackberry so people can follow along. You can find plenty more information about the World Series of Poker at www.wsop.com. While I doubt my name will be mentioned that frequently during the early updates, you can follow along with live updates of Event #32 on the WSOP site as well.
Time to see how I stack up against the biggest live poker field in the world.
